This beautiful young gelding is described by his owner/trainer as a lover who craves attention, a total sweetheart to handle, very comfortable and polite to ride, and very smart. He showed off light, lofty movement with nice cadence for his jog video. Unraced, he incurred a mild bowed tendon while training in Florida this past winter. He was given state of the art PRP treatment and rest, and has progressed to hand walking. The tendon was ultrasounded in mid-May, and the vet said it was healing very well, and that with a bit more rest the horse would be ready for any discipline with no limitations — the vet said he could even go back to racing, but the owner/trainer knows he is too nice of a show hunter or dressage prospect so she wants him to find a new career. Gallopintocongaree is ready to enjoy turnout, and by mid-summer you can start ground work and retraining. His trainer says he is great in turn out with other horses, has good feet, trailers well, stands, clips, has no vices — just a wonderful horse to have in the barn. With his great shoulder, uphill build, and lovely balanced movement, and quiet friendly personality, we think he is an excellent prospect for the hunters or for dressage. Do not let the mild bow deter you — it was quickly and properly treated, and his is vet cleared for any discipline! This is the type of horse that would be three times the price if not for the almost fully healed mild bow — so he presents an enticing opportunity to get an exceptional horse at a bargain price. He is by Congaree, who is from the Blushing Groom sire line, and he is out of a mare by Victory Gallop, who is from the Cryptoclearance/Fappiano sire line. Halo, Alydar, Damascus, and In reality are other coveted jumping sire lines in his pedigree.
